According to Linton, the exhibit of career treasures that he and Pam intend to bring to Watertown include: guitars and instruments, costumes, stage clothes, awards, plaques, albums, posters, photos and other memorabilia going back to the 1950s. Linton intends to attend his Class of ‘57 high school reunion on Saturday night the 27th and then he and Pam will be on hand to greet those that come and see the world premiere of Sherwin Linton Forever on the Stage on Sunday. Doors will open at noon at the Watertown Event Center where a sell out crowd is expected. Advance tickets can be ordered through Pioneer Public TV’s web site at www.pioneer.org/sherwinlinton or by calling 1-800-726-3178.
“We can’t wait to see all of our South Dakota friends at the premiere in Watertown on September 28th,” said Linton. “But if that event is sold out, we encourage those that can’t get in to attend the show in Luverne on Sunday, October 5th at 2 p.m. at the historic Palace Theatre,” he added.
The documentary traces the story of how Linton created his own rock 'n' roll and country radio show and band at the age of 15 in Watertown, South Dakota. Now at age 75, Linton continues to perform and is listed in Ripley’s Believe It Or Not for never missing a performance in almost 60 years.
